well, it would be a start, but, then again, they had to call it for a few dozen more of world leaders. I don't really think that some do without other knowing....

Everyone's aware that it would come down to this one day and, although, this could very well help in one big number of areas, it's non less true that, in the wrong hand and with the wrong intentions, it can be an amazingly powerfull object of wrong doing. Throught history we've seen what some can do in trying to "rule the world" or at least the majority of it and it was almost successfull for a few. In resume, great ideia, but caution will never be enough.

In my country there's a saying that translated would be something like this:

"when you offer too much to the saint, he'll be suspicious.

Still, to this children,little it's always better then nothing, although money can't bring somethings back.

Posted in: Demand for Japanese language instruction in U.S. skyrocketing See in context

@ JapanGal - first i'd like to learn how to speak (at least the basic) then try to read it.

No my interest in Japan comes from way back, but only after the net became more wide and global (and the net providers in my country decided to put up decent services) i could again resume my "investigation" on Japan. Them i've started working for a company (around 2001) that represents a japanese brand and i think knowing something about it could' t hurt.

Posted in: Prison inmates' illnesses, injuries go untreated See in context

the truth is that no one, i mean NO ONE, is free from been thrown to jail. No justice system's perfect and, as such, any one of us could have the missfortune of end up in jail, for whatever reason and many times innocently. Belive me i've seen it happen.

I'd like to see if those against medical aid to prisioners, still said it if hey had a really close familiar in jail (son/daughter - brother/sister...)

Still, what happens in japan's health system is not that far from what's happening in my country's health care system.

I'd love to speak Japanese, but in my country you'll hardly find someone or somewhere who can teach you. Still i'm trying to do it via internet trough a site named:

Nihongo o Narau: http://www.learn-japanese.info/

I've only started this year and, of course, i still can't say much other then telling my name and losen words.

Can anyone, please, tell me if this site is of any good?

Posted in: Japan calls on eurozone to swiftly implement Greece aid plan See in context

This whole Euro thing was a disaster waiting to happen. They should all go back to their own currencies and let those that fail, do it only to themselves.<

Sorry to disagree, but i live in one of the aided countries, and belive me, it´s not that simple:

1st - It would cost more to disband then to not, mainly because some currencies would be so low that the debt would rise up to 5 times or more, therefore impossible to ever get paid.

2nd - The business now made between countries in Eurozone would be dramatically afected, again because of prices, some countries would then really be bankrupt.

3rd - the countries who have invested in some of those countries funds would be, in trouble?

What i mean is that sometimes you just can't go back like that.
